    i've been reading H.P. Lovecraft, your basic zombie novels like Day by Day and Morning Star Strain, enjoyed the horror/thriller Patient Zero... but most of the time if i pick up a stephen king book i get bored, my sister raved for years to me about how awesome anne rice is and that lead me to more let downs... hook a brotha up.

    Clive Barker's Books Of Blood are good.

    I know you said you've been let down by Stephen King, but I'm betting you dived right into his novels. Have you tried his short story collections? Night Shift, Nightmares and Dreamscapes, and Skeleton Crew are all excellent. IMO his best (and scariest) stuff is the short stories.

    Richard Matheson wrote some good stuff. I'd say get a copy of one of his short story collections, too.

    I haven't read the book yet, but Let Me In by John Avjide Lindquist is supposed to be good (the novel Let The Right One In was based on).

    I just started They Thirst by Robert McCammon, and it's pretty good so far. (vampires invading Los Angeles)

    Oh, and I strongly recommend you do a good horror mspaint. I'm going to start the contest probably tonight.

    I've decided on the prize, and it's just right for this thread:

    [​IMG]

    It's an anthology of werewolf short stories. I first read it when I was a teenager and loved it. Then I read it again recently, and it's just as good as I remembered. :bigthumb:

    So I met this girl who worked at Starbucks, and I worked up the courage to ask her on a date after a couple of conversations at the register. She was a month older than me but I didn't really care, she was fun to be around. So we took a walk along the beach, and we kissed in the pale moonlight, a full moon, it was really romantic. We started really getting into it, and she slowly unzipped my jeans, she reaches inside and starts kissing her way down my chest, she finally gets all the way down, looks up at me with the most seductive eyes I've ever seen and says "No thanks, I had Reese's for breakfast" and I'm like "No way, you had candy for breakfast?" She replies, "Not candy! Reese's puffs cereal!" So she sliiiiides me a bowl. I crunch into it and WHAM! My mouth goes crazy! That smooth combo of peanut butter and chocolate-y taste attacking my taste buds! She zips my pants back up and says "And it's part of this complete breakfast!"

    If you're a Lovecraft fan you might want to check out the Titus Crow books by Brian Lumley. They're all set in Lovecraft's Cthulhu universe.

    I liked it better, but mainly because I'm a huge Lovecraft fan. I've only read the first Necroscope book, that was pretty good too.
